The Shame of Ireland
Hi Cathriona thanks for the information regarding the redress board.
I have sent Gerry Finn an E-mail hope you receive a response soon.
Take care and thanks Catherine.
Well one thing that stuck in my mind when i got my records was . The Nuns have accepted to have her .IF this was so why were we taken to court and condemmed to industriel schools. Since we are all lumped in together there is no mention of industriel schools as such. It was mainly because of family problems that we found ourselves there. We never even missed school because many were too young.. Reform schools are mentioned. residential. But not the places we were sent to because the nuns had made a decision. Its haunts me. I will never forget going back to goldenbridge. And my Dad had travelled such a long way to be there.
